comment “a wottle of bine”, “a can of boot reer” and “holed and sealed” - What types of speech errors are these?
How about a "slip of the tongue", or - in some cases - a "Freudian slip" or a "parapraxis"...

comment Can you buy things “for cheap”?
@FumbleFingers: Talk is cheap! And, if something costs a pretty penny, don't pay an arm and a leg to get it!... drive a hard bargain! And so on... There are a great many idioms (and especially about money, prices and bargain).

You can buy something for a song (also a very nice expression). See idioms.thefreedictionary.com/for+a+song.

comment Most of the books explain it + singular or plural
it refers to the notion being explained. What is difficult to understand? It is not the books. It is what is explained therein. Btw, you've written explian instead of explain.

comment “I'm not X, am I?” vs. “I'm not X, do I?”
I just wanted to point out to the phrase "Aren't I?" but it only fits contexts like "I am making sense, aren't I?" and is a synonym to "am I not?".

comment Alternative word for “arguably better”
"Moot" is a nice word although might not be exactly what you're looking for. You can say that something is a "moot point" or "moot practices" and so on...
